    Greetings!
    Have noticed on some of my contacts, I have the option of selecting iPhone for a particular #.
    Odd thing is, it's not available for all, and not nessacarily actually assignable to contacts with an iPhone.
    I'm I missing something obvious?
    Best,

    Tap "mobile" and then you can select from any number of phones. You can even make custom ones.

    It's not there for all:



    2 different contacts, one has iPhone option, one does not.
    Unlocked and JB 3GS 4.2.1 flashed with iPad firmware.

    Something seems amiss. Maybe corrupted?

    Do you have a normal mobile number for the contact without the iPhone option ? Or is it saved as a home number? Because once you put in a mobile number and save. The iPhone option then becomes available.

    Nope, just saved as a mobile. No other number associated with contact and iPhone not available.

    Thought it may have something to do with old contacts created under old firmware or even syncd from email.
    Just created new test contact, and it was not available....

    Its nothing really to worry about. Its probably just a setting somewhere, its onlylike, a tag.... it doesn't mean you cant put an iPhone number in your phone

    Whats the point of the iPhone option? Just for organization?

    As stated so eloquently above, no big deal. Just wondering if I'm missing something or anyone else ran into this....

    probably...
    First time I noticed it as an option for my contacts was a few months ago.
    It also shows up on incoming call as from an iPhone....

    The condescending replies are hilarious and your responses are absolute GOLD!
    Even though I have the same question/problem, I am following this thread for your answers to the Others.

    This is most funny! It changes the thing to FaceTime option but in the phone type options iPhone remains missing. Just one of those quirks, I reckon!

    Seeing that the thread is over 5 years old, I doubt there will be much traffic in it ;)
